Need advice on Installing JRE on Centos


I need to install a Java Runtime Environment on my Centos 4 x86_64 (Intel EM64T - not AMD).

The problem is that SUN only have an install for 64bit on Solaris.

I found a site that has installs for x86_64 - but it appears to be only for AMD

Am I right in thinking that i can use the AMD install for a EM64T as they are both x86_64?

If I cant do that - is it possible(or wise) to install 32bit Java on a 64bit machine?

Any help appreciated.

After downloading and installing - it turned out that JRE 1.5.0_3 is already installed - its just not linked to.

Centos 4 x86_64 puts it here....

I created a symbolic link in the root and its working fine now

Thanks for jumping in there though
